Will.i.am Raises $2.4 Million At Pre-Grammy Charity Concert


Sergio Mendes, Busta Rhymes, Chaka Khan, Slick Rick, Bell Biv DeVoe and Doug E. Fresh all came together last week for one big pre-Grammy concert. 

Pero, it wasn’t just any concert. 

The event, “Trans4m” was a charity show for hip hop and R&B star Will.i.am’s foundation. 

It raised more than $2.4 million which will go to help the educational needs of children in East Los Angeles, the neighborhood where Will.i.am grew up. 

“People are coming to the Grammys just to celebrate, and when you put purpose in the room, people inherently, they want to do good,” he said before the show. “I think that’s the reason why we’ve been able to keep this going.” 

The charity concert has become a part of the annual Grammys celebration. 

En el pasado, artists such as Alicia Keys, Black Eyes Peas y Boyz II Men have performed and been a part of the great cause.
